The Wrong Direction

Lyrics for The Wrong Direction by Passenger

When I was a kid, the things I did we’re hidden unto the grid,
Young and naive I never believed that love could be so well hid
With regret i’m willing to bet they say the older you get
It gets harder to forgive and harder to forget
It get’s under you’re shirt like a dagger at work
The first cut is the deepest but the rest still flippin’ hurt
You build you’re heart of plastic, you’re cynical and sarcastic
And end up in the corner on you’re own.

Cause I love to feel loved but I can’t stand the rejection, I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection, I thought I was close but under further inspection, It seems i’ve been running in the wrong direction oh no.

So what’s the point in getting you’re hopes up
If all you’re getting is choked up
When you’re coked up and can’t remember the reason why I broke up
You call her in the morning when you’re coming down and falling like an old man on the side of the road
Cause when you’re apart you don’t wanna mingle
But when you’re together you wanna be single
Ever the chase to taste to the kiss of bliss that made you’re heart tingle
How much greener the grass is with you’re rose tinted glasses
And the butterflies flutter by and they leave us on our asses.

Cause I love to feel loved but I can’t stand the rejection, I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection, I thought I was close but under further inspection, It seems i’ve been running in the wrong direction oh no.

Theres fish in the sea for me to make a selection
I’d jump in if it wasn’t for my ear infection
Cause all I wanna do is make a connection
And it seems i’ve been running in the wrong direction

What is love baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more
What is love baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more
Oh what is love baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more
